So, I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself to you ladies who may not know me, or even know that I have taken over as Women’s Ministry Director here at Sugar Grove. We have so many new people, and that is so exciting, but that also means that there are a lot of women who may not know how to plug in!
My name is Shannon Baad, and I am a stay at home mom. My kids are Jacob (8) and Olivia (6), and both attend Middlebury Schools. I am married to Jim, and we have been married for 17 years. We have been attending Sugar Grove for about 9 years. We love our church family, and have seen a lot of changes since we’ve been here. I love women’s ministry, and have been to pretty much every women’s event I could attend since I started at Sugar Grove. Previous to serving as Women’s Director, I co-led our Time Out for Moms group for 4 years. I still have a lot to learn, and I am still trying to get the hang of all that I am supposed to be doing, so I humbly ask for your patience as we move forward.
Each week, leading up to our Fall Bible Studies, I wanted to highlight the different studies and groups we offer. I want to start with our Single Moms Bible Study, because they start first. They start meeting August 21st, along with the Awana schedule. That way, if you need childcare, your child can join Awana, and you can learn and grow yourself! Our leaders for this group are Becky Bender and Val Bierlein. These are two amazing women, who have been leading this group for several years. This year, they are doing a continuation of Lori Little’s study, “Hope and Help for the Single Mom”. This study helps you learn 21 principles of being a healthy single mom. This group has really given a lot of support to our single moms over the years, and if you are a single mom, and looking for other women you can connect with, please sign up:
Please let me know if you ladies have any questions, and I’ll be highlighting another group next week, here on our Facebook page, so stay tuned!! Feel free to check out our website at any time for all of the details of our Fall studies. You can contact me at email@example.com.
